Update - May 6: Chris Tierney is now questionable for Saturday’s match vs. Columbus Crew SC.

If the Revolution want to snap a four-match winless steak, they may have to do so without Kei Kamara and Chris Tierney.

When the club travels to Columbus this weekend to take on Crew SC, both players may miss out on the gameday 18. Tierney is recovering from a hip irritation (the defender is currently listed as doubtful, despite training earlier this week) and Kamara, who also trained this week, has spent extended time with his wife as the couple awaits the birth of their child.

Jay Heaps missed both players against the Sounders last week. When the Revs starters wore down late in the second half, Heaps made a trio of less-than-ideal subs, moves that ultimately played into the Revs’ collapse down the stretch.

If Tierney and Kamara do miss their second consecutive outing, look for Heaps to stick with his week nine lineup by plugging Kelyn Rowe into the left back spot and Lee Nguyen into a second forward role. In this arrangement, Diego Fagundez would again take over the center attacking midfield position, a role he successful carried out a week ago.

The Revs and Crew kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET from MAPFRE Stadium.
